I drive all the way out from Garden City to Massapequa Park for my Corned Beef Hash cravings from time to time. It's still tasty as the day I first tried their corned beef hash years ago. It's made with real tasting corned beef with...chunks of meat and chopped up with perfection. This place is best known for their breakfasts & lunch items since they close by 3pm. Great well made sandwiches & salads are great choices for those who prefer brunch items but sadly there are no burger choices. Kind of wish they would add burgers to their menu but heck...I would like to have world peace too. Can't have everything but it's still great to dream right? Another must try is their Benny's (that's what they call it here) I really like their Cajun sausage and you can have that with their Down South Benny with Cajun Sausage on Cheddar Biscuit. Yum! Their pancakes taste different than your typical IHOP or Diner. They are not as fluffy but still light with an interesting chew feel, must be the flour the Chef uses. This place is well worth the drive for a great breakfast if you can venture out there. It's really not that far for a well made & served breakfast or brunch! Happy Eating and I'll see you by their comfy booths!More

On line menu doesn’t show $ which is a sign of turning off customers. Went there, NOT impressed. Ordered eggs over very easy, came back hard cooked. Returned, waitress needed an attitude adjustment. Don’t go, save your money

Took my family there this Sunday for brunch and it was excellent! A great menu. The portions are large and the service was wonderful! Can’t wait to go back and try the others dishes.

Very nice local breakfast spot in the beautiful village of Massapequa park. Personal favorite was the eggs Benedict with their home fries. There lunch foods are also delicious, Philly cheese steak was great! Place fills up quick but your usually not waiting long with their...new expanded room.More

Lucky if you are a local to come here for breakfast or lunch. You'll be spoiled cause no where else can compare to this place. First, you're going to have to learn there's always a wait. Doesn't matter if it's during the week or weekend....Always a wait. Just know that it's really worth the wait. Even after they've expanded the restaurant from the early days, there's always a wait. People actually sit on the bar chairs and eat by the bar their breakfast while enjoying their hot coffees/lattes. Their strong drinks are popular too especially a well made bloody mary. I have never learned to how do a stiff one early in the morning but doesn't mean I can't practice. Love all their breakfast choices especially I reccomend getting their cajun sausage instead of a regular sausage and don't forget a side dish of corned beef hash. Note: it's really delicious for $6 side portion but year's ago there was more corned beef. Still alot but not like how I raved about it when they first opened. The restaurant has kept their prices fairly unchanged and kept their quality. Customers appreciate that very much. Perhaps that's why they are always busy. Happy Eating and I'll see you around the tables but I like their booths here. Good luck getting one.More

Amazing little breakfast place, they definitely have a unique and gourmet homemade taste to their food! Service was decent, parking was hard to find, and they had amazing cajun sausage! I definitely enjoyed my experience and I can safely say that I will be back...again. Thanks to Jam for a great experience and for providing such a unique place to have a good breakfast.More

I’ve been to this place a few times, the food is always good. It is breakfast and lunch entrées. The service is good although it is always crowded. I like that the establishment has taken over the store next-door, it gives diners more room. Most...often a wait, but not usually more than 15 minutes on weekdays. I’m sure the weekends are crazy. I would give this place a try it’s worth the waitMore

Came here a few weeks ago for a weekday brunch with a friend We actually both got eggs Benedict- mines was with chorizo and hers was vegetarian, and a side of canadian bacon. The food was perfectly flavored, not too salty but salted. It was...super flavorful- both dishes and I'm actually going back tomorrow! It's nice decor, lots of space, with booths and almost 'bar-like' seating on the other side if I'm not mistaken.More

Came here on a gloomy Saturday post holidays for a late breakfast and there was a pretty long wait. They do not take reservations. Advice- if you can sit at the bar do so! Due to that we were seated and served immediately and dodges...a 45 min wait. Waiter was nice and we each ordered drinks and food within the first 10 mins. However, the wait for food was about extreme-we arrived at 1 and didn’t eat until almost 2. Other than that the food was good- I recommend the blueberry pancakes. The food my sister and boyfriends had looked great as well (see pics) I would dine here again when in town.More

Really enjoy the food here, I've gone from the benedicts, to the omeletes, and now to the waffle/pancake portion of the menu. The waffles are something else, the berries and strawberries taste great and there are waffle bites that have little sugar balls that add...to the sweetness. You can't go wrong with what you pick on the menu, just come back and try a new plate each time like me. Good: -Pearl Sugar Waffle!!! -Meals come out relatively fast in my opinion. Bad: -NoneMore
